After more than two decades, hip hop legends A Tribe Called Quest is back at the top of the Billboard music charts with their new album ‘We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service’ which was released on November 11. The new album will be their final album and their first since the passing of founding member Phife Dawg back in March.
We Got It From Here is A Tribe Called Quest’s second No. 1, following Beats, Rhymes and Life, which topped the list for one week on the chart dated Aug. 17, 1996 — 20 years and three months ago. That gap between No. 1s is the longest for a hip-hop act in the chart’s history. Previously, Jeezy —just two weeks ago — held the longest wait between No. 1s among hip-hop acts, with eight years and two months between The Recession in September of 2008 and Trap or Die 3 this month.
